So, what is wheat-starch?

Wheat starch is a fine white powder that is derived from wheat flour through a process of washing and separating the starch granules from the gluten and other components. It is a versatile food ingredient that is commonly used as a thickening agent, stabilizer, and binder in a wide range of food products, including baked goods, soups, sauces, and desserts. Wheat starch is gluten-free, making it an ideal choice for individuals with gluten sensitivity or celiac disease. It has a neutral flavor and provides a smooth, silky texture to foods. Its unique properties make it an essential ingredient in the food industry.
